How to make Papparoti Buns

  1. For making tanzong
  2. First we will prepare tangzhong by mixing flour and water in such away that there are no lumps. Place this mixture in low heat till it thickens. Remove this mixture in a clean bowl and cling wrap in such away that the wrap touches the mixture. Let it cool completely.
  3. Now prove yeast adding it to the milk along with sugar and keep it aside to bloom up.
  4. Once proved in a bowl of stand mixer add in all ingredients (expect butter) and combine well for 15 minutes. The mixture will be sticky.
  5. Now start kneading the mixture by hand for at least 5 minutes by stretch and fold method.
  6. Now add the 1/2 cup unsalted butter little by little. Knead till it forms a soft ball. Place it in a bowl and cling wrap it and let it rest for 1 1/2 hours.
  7. After one and a half hour divide the balls into 10 big pieces of equal weight (i just eye balled it) and form it into balls.
  8. Lightly flatten these balls and fill it with chilled butter cubes. Pinch and seal the balls and again form a ball by cupping it between your palms. Let it rest for 1/2 an hour.
  9. In the mean time we will prepare the frosting.
  10. Combine 3 tbsp hot water and coffee powder to make a thick paste and set it aside.Now cream butter and powdered sugar till pale and fluffy with a hand blender. Add in coffee paste and blend it again.
  11. Then add eggs followed by flour and milk powder blend it well. Remove this mixture in a pipping bag.
  12. By now our buns may have doubled their size. Frost them with this coffee frosting by making spiral designs on them about half a way of the dough.
  13. Bake these in a preheated oven @ 180 degree c for 13-15 mins. Serve warm with coffee or tea.
